5.75×6″ cereal box background as base. Sewing pattern paper, stamped tissue papers, acrylic paint, pencil, Faber-Castel Pitt pen, vintage bird image and scrap papers. Poem, typed on tracing paper reads: Light up. LIFT OFF. / You are a wild & wonderful / Truth. A lusty golden / miracle. / Open the floodgate of / your unbridled, unabashed, / sweet, ESSENTIAL joyousness / that juicy / life always already / pulsating in the GLOBAL You. The stamping around the edges is from one of the eraser stamps I carved the other day.
I’m making another one. The background is done, but I still need to choose and add central elements and design. However, before I do I’m trying to decide whether I should have left the poem off and let the flower stand front and center, if it is too busy the way it is or not.
